Kuname River Lodge is a small, unashamedly exclusive, luxury safari lodge set in about 9,000 hectares of pristine African bush, in the Karongwe Private Game Reserve. We are only 45 minutes drive from the world-famous Kruger National Park in South Africa.

Accommodation at the lodge is in five private, comfortable chalets, nestled in dense bush overlooking the majestic Drakensberg escarpment.

The air-conditioned chalets are decorated in an elegant African style, with each item of artwork having its own story.

The en-suite bathrooms include an outdoor shower as well as a luxurious outdoor bath. The magnificent views from the quaint private wooden decks on each of the chalets simply take your breath away.

Each morning before the fiery sunrise paints the sky and every evening before the sun sets, an experienced, highly-qualified, field guide and tracker takes guests on unhurried game drives in our open game vehicle to seek out and get close to the Big Five and the dozens of other animal species found on the conservancy.

But a game drive at Kuname is about more than simply ticking off animals on a 'game-sighting list' and following the Big Five. With incredible bird life and century old trees, professional guides, each with an astounding knowledge of the environment, ensure that visitors become participants, rather than just spectators as they feel the rhythms of the veld. A game drive at Kuname is about getting immersed in an African bush experience. A tactile occasion.

Dining at Kuname is a special treat. A time to enjoy a kaleidoscope of flavours inspired by Africa but guided by the culinary traditions of Europe.

Our gourmet chef lured from one of South Africa's top restaurants ensures each meal at Kuname is an unforgettable gastronomic occasion. A barbecue with fine wines on the wooden viewing-deck or an elegant bush dinner, while you inhale the earthy scents of the African bush, will make your taste-buds soar.

Bordered by the towering Drakensberg escarpment on the west and set in game-rich, lush, riverine vegetation, the facility offers a variety of breathtaking views, diverse landscapes and some of the best big five game-viewing opportunities in southern Africa.
